Strong optical nonlinearities in dispersive dielectric chirped mirrors below the damage threshold Conference Proceeding uri icon



  • We experimentally characterized an unexpectedly-strong nonlinear response in dispersive dielectric multilayer mirrors below the known damage threshold. We observed a strong reflectivity decrease, local heating, transient spectral modifications, and time-dependent absorption of the incident pulse.
